Re: Sunken Gardens


I understand why many programs have done away with books - I don't
necessarily like it, but understand somewhat.  But, I agree, help and
wizards are often useless.  I think any program that does not provide a
book - that's virtually all these days - should put the manual on the CD in
manual form - not help form - so you can go through the whole thing if you
want.  Neato did this, I think in .pdf form.  I just printed the whole thing
out in economy mode and comb bound it so I'd have the book.
